For The Girls

Album: For The Girls (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Women have been confounding men since Adam and Eve met in the Garden of Eden. This song looks at all the things boys will do for a girl.

    According to Vincent Poag, it's not about a specific person. "Women are different than men and men don't understand women," he said in a Songfacts interview. "This song has been in the back of my mind forever. Its inspiration is man's never-ending tendency to get in trouble with women. It's happened throughout history and happening every minute of the day everywhere."
